Knotel Takes 80K SF Across Midtown South


Fast-growing coworking outfit Knotel has nailed down another 80,000 square feet of leases across four properties in Midtown South and NoMad, the company announced yesterday.

The largest of the three transactions was a 51,000-square-foot lease on the second and third floors of the Rosen family’s 27 West 23rd Street. Scottish whisky maker Edrington inked a 25,390-square-foot lease in the building between Broadway and Avenue of the Americas last year.

In the smallest deal, the flexible office provider leased 6,044 square feet at Savanna’s 31 West 27th Street, between Broadway and Avenue of the Americas.  =
